Would you rather have a small group of close friends,
a large group of acquaintances ( casual friends) ?
Now the real question is... Do you care about popularity? Will you go all out just to achieve it?
It seems to me that so many people these days value popularity above so many other important things. Of course, being popular isn't a bad thing. But it can be... if you try too hard, if you erase your own personality just to be someone else. Or even worse, if you let the couple of close friends you initially had to drift away... just for the sake of being acquainted with a large group of people. That wouldn't be good, would it? It's not worth it.
It's okay not to be liked by everyone. When it reaches the point in which you try so hard just to get people to like you, everything becomes fake...it comes across as a plead for attention. Close friendships you had with certain people will no longer be the same.
Popularity really isn't that important. Think of it, a couple of years later, when you leave school...will all this matter? What you really need now is a couple of close friends. Genuine friends.... by that I mean people who are willing to stick with you through the thick and thins of your life.
So next time you leave your close friends just to associate with more "popular people"... take a moment to be in your friends' shoe. Do you like what they're thinking of you? No.
Thank you for reading:)
